Rated #1 in Florida by Travel & Leisure magazine's "T&L 500, The World's Best Hotelsquot; - January 2008


Cafe Marquesa - Zagat's highest rated restaurant in Key West
(305) 292-1244

No visit to Key West is complete without a trip to Café Marquesa. For a memorable Key West dining experience, Café Marquesa’s "Contemporary American Cuisine” does not disappoint. Specialties include grilled meats and fresh, local seafood, complemented by inventive appetizers and salads as well as fresh baked breads and desserts made daily.

Diners at the 50-seat restaurant catch glimpses of kitchen theatre behind a hand-painted trompe l'oeil wall. Large mahogany-framed mirrors give diners a view of the entire restaurant. Specialties include Macadamia Crusted Yellowtail Snapper, Proscuitto Wrapped Black Angus Filet, Conch & Blue Crab Cakes, Roast Rack of Australian Lamb and Pan Roasted Duck Breast.

Based on seasonal availability, Chef Susan Ferry selects the finest seafood, meats and produce to design the menu. She and her team of talented chefs present innovative interpretations of classic dishes nightly.

A cozy bar is available for drinks, light bites, dessert and coffee or full meals. Friends and hotel guests meet at the bar prior to dinner and before or after the theatre. It is a great place to begin or end an evening!
